republicans, the republicans that cared about the environment and privacy are absolutely excluded and fearful of speaking up. >> hal: right. >> caller: and that is really the mind-control the thought-control police that people have to look at as the example of where we don't want to go. i think it's so critical. >> hal: i always find it very shocking when there's this belief on the right that the expression of someone else's rights that are in the constitution, in the bill of rights, the acting on those rights in your own way is somehow a violation of theirs simply because it differs with their religious beliefs or makes them feel icky. if i'm creeped out, i don't want them to make it legal, because then i have to explain it to my kid. and the kid is more hip than you are, and the kid is like it's okay with me. and then you have to have a conversation with what your belief system is. you used to not even have to talk about it. if somebody got pregnant that wasn't supposed to. you sent her off to her aunt and she became unpregnant. >> i think you are right. th
the green zone in a humvee. certainly in those environments, we have to act differently. we've let certain things slide the cyber threat from china and nuclear threat from iran that i think deep cover small nimble, elite covert operatives could do a really good job of collecting intelligence. we need to get back to that. michael: it does make sense. you know better than everybody that you can change while still employing some of the important parts of the past. one of the members of the committee that warned the president about the distractions in the intelligence committee former senator david born is on that committee. he said: michael: it sounds like he agree with the senator. >> i do agree with him. you know, the c.i.a. was slow to change after the end of the cold war and then we were caught flat-footed and september 11 occurred, the biggest intelligence failure of our lifetimes. i think the reason that the c.i.a. is so slow to change, and can be so short-sighted is because it's a huge bureaucracy and we keep adding layers when i think we should be scaling back on it. >> one of the oth
environment -- i would be hard to imagine if in june they come back with the ruling on the doma case and prop 8 case and they maintain doma and maintain -- it's just hard to imagine in this environment. there would be such a backlash. the public is so ahead of where these laws were in 2004 and 2008. >> bill: absolutely. 866-55-press if you want to weigh in on this very very significant movement in the direction in support of marriage equality. you mentioned and you referred to the -- we love the phrase autopsy. in that this is what the republicans are calling it the point we have made here several times. it's an unusual choice of a phrase -- if you want -- that you do not perform autopsy on bodies you expect to come back to life. >> they are dead. >> bill: exactly they are cold. but that's what they are calling it. at any rate, one of the things is outreach. we're going to spend $10 million reaching out to women and to blacks and to latinos and they are already violating it you report on think progress. >> they violated moments after -- you have this big endorse
today's complicated issues in today's environment? >> would you agree there is some responsibility on the part of the members of congress to educate themselves to be able to speak about this? >> absolutely. >> because we were knee deep in the fight and they had no clue. >> you are absolutely right. i spent basically 14 months doing nothing but talking about health care reform. and i would walk into a room in my district with 50 people who wr were ready to strangle me, and spend 50 minutes going through the options, and after that period of time, they would walk out and say, hey, this sounds great. but it totally was an education process, and we didn't do -- as a party we didn't do very good job of that. individual people did better than others for sure. >> hal: right. and we only have a couple of seconds left with you, and first of all i want to thank you for being the congressman from the great state of kentucky but there is one other issue, and i want to personally thank you. and you can go to yarmuth.house.gov, is that you are talking about introducing -
create and raise in the best environment. >> oh, boy. >> i couldn't hear that. >> stephanie: she was talking about -- i'm sorry. play it one more time. >> put your headphones on. >> i'm sorry. >> stephanie: i hated to aren't you than beautiful hair too. >> the institution of marriage and marriage laws are designed to attach mothers and fathers to each other and to the children that they may create and raise in the best environment. >> straights are automatically great parents. >> stephanie: you can read a story a day of some horrific story about straight parents. >> two things to say about that, that somehow marriage is only about raising children and there's plenty of straight couples that have no intention of raising any children at all. and in fact, if they do raise children many of them aren't even married. but i can tell you i know many, many many, many same-sex couples, whether it's two lesbians together or two gay men, and they're making wonderful parents and their kids are wonderfully adjusted. it really -- their children may turn out gay but you know, their sexuality --
on record about this, saying it is not good for the environment. >> this pipeline would create 35 permanent jobs and yet if you were to read the normal media reports, you would think this was a creator of hundreds of thousands of jobs. so this is an export pipeline. this is going to create major risks for the us. it goes through one of the largest sources of fresh water, and we don't need the oil. >> bill: what is happening in the senate this week. i know we have talked ahead of time that the senate is voting on this issue -- >> potentially. the budget bill is moving through the senate this week and there is a lot of talk that an amendment will be introduced. so there is a group of senator, again, heavenly backed by oil money, that are pushing an amendment to take the control away from the president and moving the vote to congress. >> bill: who were the senators who are leading the opposition to keystone? >> senator hoven and boxus who have stepped forward for it. senator boxer, senator white house. and like i said before, unfortunately the oil contributions to the
. >> how can you speculate how president reagan would react in today's environment? i think milltail things have changed. hal: if policies any indication, he'd be a democratic, because he'd have to change parties after he was primaried as a republican. jacki: because he was too moderate. the nature of warfare that ha changed, too. hal: george is talking out of his posterior. you can tell with the conversion from benghazi to reagan. jacki: a cooling gel might be good for that. hal: i would say to george before he calls back in and tries on another show or either on this one to push that as a paired example of presidential egregious behavior to read up on history. there are plenty of sites out there right and left where you can look at the time line leading up to the iraq war look at the pictures of abu graib. it was not the only one simply the one where the pictures came from, and the ridiculous arc of associating those with it things is like saying that the first bombing of the world trade center is equal to the second bombing of the world trade center and pearl harbor, they are all the sam

. we have furloughed another 2,000. >> which means more stuff leaking into the environment? right? >> right. they are not going to clean up this hazardous waste. >> that's a public problem and a personal problem for the people laid off furloughed. >> i was at the white house ray lahood came in. he hasn't been replaced yet. >> yeah. >> and a good man who announced one of them was going to be they were not going to eventually be delays and cancellations of flights but that they were going to shut down some towers. and i saw that over the weekend. right? >> it didn't happen immediately. now, apparently, it is actually going to happen. >> going to be cut? >> yeah. >> one tower and one runway at o'hare. you would think of all places, they would keep up to speed. right? it would be o'hare. >> and people have been -- the delays have happened to some people. there is a story about folks, international arrivals getting held up at customs a few hours. it's already as aggravating as it could possibly be. now it will be more aggravating. >> what will it take before
